Kiwanis Donates to the Centre's Cooking Program
"Help us feed children and their families during this difficult time for all of us"

The Kiwanis Club of Rodney donated $720.00 to the Let's Connect kids cooking program at the West Elgin Community Health Centre to pay for additional families to participate in the Krazy Kitchen program.  This program allows young mothers to come with their children, who are cared for by staff and volunteers while the moms learn how to cook a full meal for their family, and then take that meal, and their new skills home, for the family's nutritional benefit!  This donation will allow families who are currently on the waitlist to participate fully for a full year.  The Centre also offers other programs for parents with children who are three to six years old, called Kitchen Kids, as well Cookin' Kids, in which kids aged seven to nine learn how to cook a full meal, again taking it home to feed their family.

There are wait lists for all of these programs and donations are needed to support this and other valued programs at the Centre owing to a continuing shortage of funding.  Please support the hardworking, caring staff by contributing to these programs.
